Bangladesh celebrating 50 years of victory over Pakistan

Today Bangladesh Calibrates Victory Day on Pakistan. On this day in 1971, the nation emerged as an independent country following a nine-month-long bloodstained War of Liberation against the Pakistani occupation forces.

General AAK Niazi, the Pakistani forces’ commanding commander, surrendered with his 93,000 soldiers of the Pakistan Armed Forces Eastern Command to Indian forces and Mukti Bahini, bringing the 9-month-long Bangladesh Liberation War, the 1971 Bangladesh genocide, and the official secession of East Pakistan into Bangladesh to an end. 

India has a great contribution in Librating Bangladesh from the worst civil war and brutal genocide in Eastern Pakistan(Now Bangladesh), and Bangladesh acknowledges this contribution of India with Pride.

Even in the darkest days of the nine-month war waged by the proclamation of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s liberation struggle against a powerful enemy, the unwavering hope of the people to break the dictatorship paved the way.

Bangladesh Formerly Known as Eastern Pakistan right before independence was being brutally thrashed by Pakistani Forces.

Pakistani Army did a mass genocide in Eastern Pakistan along with brutal murders and rape on a large scale. Seeing this rebels groups and Bangladesh’s Mukti Bahini took the charge and took the help of Indian Army which ultimately destroyed the brutal actions of Pak forces and made them sit on knees in just few days.

Pakistan lost half of its nation, its eastern forces, and had to officially surrender to India on this day 47 years ago. After World War II, it was also the largest military surrender.

Pakistan launched air strikes on 11 Indian airbases to start the conflict. It was maybe the first time that India’s three military battled together.In response to the Pakistan Army’s actions in the west, India moved fast and took around 15,010 kilometres of Pakistani land.

The conflict came to an end when Pakistan’s military head, General Amir Abdullah Khan Niazi, surrendered with 93,000 troops to the Indian Army and Bangladesh’s Mukti Bahini. 

In spite of all the obstacles, the final victory was achieved on December 16, 1971 with the help of dedication of the Indian military, which strengthened the emergence of Bangladesh as an independent nation.

This is the invincible spirit that is contained and distributed by Bangabandhu, the founder of the Bangladesh. Fittingly, the golden jubilee of heroic victory coincides with the centenary celebrations of Bengali’s largest birthday ever.

In his message to the people of Bangladesh, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina called for the principles of the country’s liberation struggle to be passed on from generation to generation.

Highlighting the steps taken by the country over the past 50 years under the leadership of the Father of the Nation and his party, the Awami League, Hasina said, “I firmly believe that if the current trend of development continues, this country will become. ‘ of Bangabandhu in 2041. “

With the end of British colonial rule in 1947, the Bengals were again arrested, this time in West Pakistan.

But the people of East Pakistan at that time found a champion of their cause in Bangabandhu, who would continue to fulfill his promise to break the chains of oppression in West Pakistani.

As dissatisfaction intensified after more than two decades of West Pakistani rule, the Pakistani Army attacked innocent Bengals on the night of March 25, 1971 to defeat their liberation struggle.

However, the invading Bengali leader had successfully proclaimed national liberation at a landmark March 7 rally at the Race Course, proclaiming with a loud voice: “In this case the struggle is for our freedom. In this case the struggle is for our freedom. ”

The Bengalis strongly opposed and snatched the victory on Dec 16 after nine months of the Freedom War.

Lt General Amir Abdullah Khan Niyazi, commander of the East Pakistani army at the time, signed an official letter of Surrender sitting next to Lt General Jagjit Singh Aurora, the joint commander of the Indian army and Mukti Bahini of Bangladesh, at the Ramna Race Course. down, now Suhrawardy Udyan.

Bangladesh stands in a unique position as one of the few countries in the world to celebrate Victory Day and Freedom Day.

But within a few years of gaining independence, tragedy struck one of the darkest chapters in Bangladesh’s history.

On Aug. 15, 1975, a mob of vicious soldiers killed Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and most of his family. The country fell into almost two decades of military dictatorship.

But in 1996, Bangabandhu’s Awami League, led by his daughter Sheikh Hasina, formed a government with its own silver-plated jubilee of Bangladesh independence.
